Cardi B, US rapper, has opposed the jailing of Akuapem Poloo, a Ghanaian actress convicted over a nude photoshoot with her son in June 2020.
The Circuit Court sitting in Accra had sentenced Poloo to 90 days in jail over the social media post.
The photo, which attracted criticism, had shown her unclad in front of her son, who was dressed only in underwear. The photoshoot was used to mark the boy’s seventh birthday.
Reacting to the verdict, Cardi B took to Twitter on Saturday to describe the judge’s decision as overkill.
I seen a lot of Americans do photoshoots like that .Even tho is not my style I don’t think she was going for sexual more going the natural idea.I think jail is a bit harsh .Maybe social media probation or community service. https://t.co/ncdwvggvFK

Noting that she has seen many of such photoshoots in the US, the singer said a social media probation or community service would have sufficed.
“Even tho is not my style I don’t think she was going for sexual more going the natural idea. I think jail is a bit harsh. Maybe social media probation or community service,” the rapper’s tweet read in part.
After the court’s verdict, Poloo had said: “Guys, you know your girl is strong. Sometimes in life, you have to pass through some things to make you strong enough to get to somewhere. I know it’s a test I have to go through.
“I’m strong, you guys know that. All that I need is your prayer and support. I’ll back with you guys. Thanks to my Nigerian and Ghanaian celebrities and others who have supported me to this point. I know you people love me and I love you too.”
